Ship Designed to Capsize

FLIPThis ship with a length of 108 meters is capable of flipping from a horizontal to a vertical position while at sea. Known as the Floating Instrument Platform (FLIP), it is designed to study wave height, acoustic signals, water temperature and density, and for the collection of meteorological data. The most fascinating aspect of it is that the bridge, galley, crew quarters and scientific laboratory and bathroom are designed to be operable in both the vertical and horizontal position. In addition, it is the only ship in the world that is capable of flipping to a horizontal position. This video shows the FLIP in action. More info and pictures can be found after the jump.

Hey – since you’re a YouTuber, you might want to check this out… There’s a video company that’s recruiting
YouTubers and if they like your stuff, (and they should) they will actually pay you when your video gets a hit.
Here’s their link… It’s about time the people who make
the videos get some of the money instead of it all going to YouTube!
